Our wood-fired and gas-fired Margherita & Mangiafuoco models; as well as, the Marinara models do NOT require any sort of seasoning process before use.
Rosso and Gusto models must go through a seasoning process before being used for the first time, or you’ll risk damaging the powder coat paint on the oven. To do this, simply build a small fire and slowly add larger pieces of wood to bring the oven to at least 500°F. Do NOT exceed 600°F. You'll want to let the fire burn for about two hours before cooling completely. Once this has been done, your Gusto or Rosso oven is ready for use!
